Best Nintendo Switch Games in 2020 (April Reviews)

To help you find the best video games for your Nintendo Switch system, we tried out all of the top titles, looking for games that boast fantastic value, with lengthy quests and plenty of reasons to keep coming back, ones that are heavy on fun factor and games that excel equally whether docked or in portable mode. We also appreciated games with top notch graphics and pinpoint controls, with content that is appropriate for any member of the family.

The best Switch game is still The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This launch title does a fantastic job of showcasing what the Switch is all about, boasting a lengthy quest (100 plus hours) in a fully realized open world, with stellar graphics and near perfect controls, featuring a unique physics engine that is a joy to experiment with and a captivating story that boasts voice acting, a first for the franchise. Keep reading to learn more about the venerable The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the other games on this list.

The Switch is the best gaming console to come out in the last few years and is somewhat more geared to the masses as you don’t have to worry about as many accessories like the best external hard drives for Xbox One or the best external hard drive for PS4. You pretty much are good to go with Nintendo’s platform.
